Yo ho Bloggers.. look at this pretty little house. One of the BRAND NEW STENCIL DESIGNS from Sweet Poppy Stencilsavailable from HERE soon. See how I made this cardHERE
My daughter Jane, has a birthday tomorrow. She was born at 11.30 pm 1966, New Year Eve's after 30 hours in labour, I wasn't too happy! World Cup year too .. it was all going on! But some stuff was slower than others! I have sent this card to her with all my love x Back tomorrow... more to share with you. Thanks for looking.
BTW.. we are getting ready 'to film' my You Tube debut! ... I'm growing me nails! Hubby has bought a directors chair and is practising shouting 'ACTION'! He's scaring the dogs ......... and the ferrets! Mmmmm.... I think he's getting a bit carried away but as the video camera is his... I'm sayin nuffink! Eileen xx
This lesson is the Distress Paints 'Eroded Metal' Technique. I'm really enjoying this class.
Get me.... I've nearly finished Day 1 !
I've used two dies for the bottles, Alterations Dies, Apothecary Bottles and Mini Apothecary Bottles.
I covered them in Versamark ink and UTEE then heated them with a heat gun (did all this three times in total) then popped them into my freezer for a few minutes before bending them so the UTEE cracked...good fun!
Thanks for stopping over to look today .
Back soon.. lots of crafty stash for Christmas and time to play... get in!!!!!

Morning Bloggers .. how yer doin? It's a busy time with Christmas just a snitch away! Take it easy now, do as much crafting as you can, it lowers the blood pressure! I'm just popping onto my blog to share this card with you.The brick wall is a HUGE stamp from the Impression Obsession, cover-a-card range. I bought mine at Ally Pally from Stamps and Memories. Lovely people, super stamps for backgrounds but you will need to ask where the 'Bricks' are cos I can't see it now! All the other images are from a stamp plate by Hero Arts.. called 'Brush Strokes'. Great fun with these! Thanks for looking at my blog today. See you soon as I'm updating my last post later! The Journal Page I 'created' looks as if it has a 'Fried Egg' in the middle of it ... Mmmm ... that needs sorting and it's no yoke! Eileen xxx
Yo ho Bloggers. A quick post tonight, so I can share a new page from my Art Journal with you.
Great fun today, playing with someWendy Vecchi Stencils and 490 Stamps, along with some Fresco Paints from Paper Artsy. Plus a dollop or two of white dimensional paste, over a couple of the stencil images.
Thank you for looking at my blog today... have a lovely Sunday evening ... I'm back to the F1 racing!
Afternoon Bloggers. I'm sharing a couple of clocks with you today that were great fun to create. The first one is coloured with alcohol inks and a blast or two of air, from my Copic Airbrushing System. I love this bit of kit, so easy to use with super results!
The second one was created using alcohol inks again but this time, with a blending tool and felt pads. I went to a fabulous Workshop hosted by Karen Clare, "The Clock Lady" where I learnt how to make these little beauties. Visit Karen's Blog and have a look. Karen has another workshop in January. I'll be there, not sure what we will be doing, but it will be loads of fun I'm sure!
Thank you for popping over to my Blog today. Have a great weekend. Stay warm ... see you soon. Eileen xxx
